How Do You (13) Benefit From Living With No (Fewer) Toxins?

Living with no toxic exposure (fewer toxins) may look heavenly with full enjoyment of life. However, in the world we live in, this scenario seems impossible. Remember, Each year, approximately seven million people die from pollution-related issues. 

A wide array of chemicals battering the body link to multiple chronic diseases. But reducing the exposure reaps immense rewards in your life journey to avert the negative health impact of environmental toxins.




Prevent Brain Health Deterioration– Polluted air, pesticides, heavy metals, and cigarette smoke lead to cognitive decline and elevated risk of neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s- the negative impact on brain health. 

Prevent ObesityKnown “endocrine-disrupting” chemicals, this class of toxins that strongly correlate to increased current obesity in society includes PCBs, DDT, dioxin, some pesticides, and many plasticizers, like BPA. Can we live without toxin exposure?

Prevent (Pre-)DiabetesInflammation from fine particles in air pollution increases the risk of type 2 diabetes. Air pollution affects insulin resistance, weakening the ability to utilize glucose.

Prevent Cancer- Metals like Arsenic, Cadmium, solvents like benzene and toluene several other toxins are cancer-related. Stay unexposed as much as possible to help prevent cancers. 

Improved Gut Health-Air pollutants (mainly particulate matter) alter the composition of the gut microbiome, increasing the risk of obesity, diabetes, gastrointestinal disorder, and other chronic illnesses.

Prevent Heart Diseases– Breathing air pollutants can: Damage your blood vessels by making them narrower and more complicated. This can increase your risk of developing heart and circulatory diseases.

Liver DisorderNonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) may progress to end-stage liver diseases such as cirrhosis and liver cancer, liver transplantation, and liver-related death.

Thyroid Malfunction– The particulate matter in outdoor air pollution is known as a human carcinogen and thyroid disturbances.

Prevent Arthritis Paingases such as SO2, NO2, carbon monoxide (CO), and O3 are the other primary pollutants that cause RA. Dust storms and fossil fuel combustion worsen the disease.

Children’s HealthAir pollution also causes low birth weight, asthma, reduced lung function, respiratory infections, and allergies in children and adolescents.

Quality Sleep– Higher bedroom levels of air pollution (particulate matter <2.5 micrometers or PM2.5), carbon dioxide, noise, and temperature were all linked independently to lower sleep efficiency.

Appropriately aged Skinprolonged or repetitive exposure to high levels of these pollutants may have profound adverse effects on the skin.

Oral Health A few of air pollution’s adverse effects on human dental health include Inflammation of the airway and resulting asthma—the erosion of tooth enamel, and a higher incidence of cavities and chips.

Let’s delve in.

Harness the power of living without (less) toxic exposure to live intrinsically healthy with the following benefits. 

How-to-Live-(Less) -Toxin-Free-in-the World-of-Toxins- Help -Yourself-With

1 Prevent Brain health deterioration. 

Many toxins can be harmful to the brain. The most common ones include lead, mercury, pesticides, and alcohol. These toxins can damage the neurons in the brain and interfere with normal brain function. Ingesting or inhaling these toxins can cause various symptoms, including memory loss, confusion, and difficulty concentrating. 

Avoid exposure to these toxins. Most toxins are fat soluble and deposit in fatty tissue like our brain, nerves, and glands. 

 High concentrations of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) deposit in on brains of people having Perkinson disease.

Hazardous waste burning, Improper disposal of some industrial waste and consumer products, and Leaks from the old electrical transformers release PCBs.

Mercury exposure severely affects brain functioning. It may result in irritability, shaking body parts involuntarily, changes in vision or hearing, and memory problems.

2. Prevent Obesity

Prevent exposure to chemicals like BPA, Phthalates, and PFOA.

Endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDC) stick fat on the liver. They make their fat cell which multiplies in the belly fat.

Live holistically. Live without plastic, Use chemical-free makeup, and use filtered water free from forever chemicals and toxic metals.

It may look like too many because they are too many. However, consciously removing them helps shed those extra pounds, saves you from being insulin resistant, reduces the risk of diabetes, and makes you feel energetic and active.

3 Prevent (Pre-)Diabetes

A new estimated diabetes prevalence published this week (Jun 27, 2023) showed that more than 1.31 billion people could be living with diabetes by 2050 worldwide—an increase in prevalence from 521 million in 2021.

One of the reasons is linked to Obosogens.

Fending off your body from contact with toxins helps but you should stay on with your lifestyle of regular exercise, nutrition, and timely medical check as per your PCP recommendation. 

Prevent Cancer

Benzene, benzidine, asbestos, vinyl chloride, radon, arsenic, nickel, cadmium, and trichloroethylene are toxic substances are human carcinogens that can increase cancer risk when exposed to per International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), among many others.

Air and water pollution, chemicals in soil and food, and pesticide use DDT, PCBs, PFAS chemicals, and flame retardants are linked to breast cancer.

Occupational chemicals increasing the risk of liver cancer include aflatoxin and DDT in developing agricultural laborers, vinyl chloride in plastic manufacturers, and arsenic, cadmium, N-nitrosamines, and organic solvents in a variety of metal-working, waste-disposing, and manufacturing industries.

5 Improved Gut Health 

Toxins can have a significant impact on your gut health. Environmental exposure, such as pesticides, heavy metals, and pollutants, can disrupt the balance of good and bad bacteria in your gut. The gut can not synthesize beneficial bacteria from toxins,, and toxins can intoxicate the microbiota. This can lead to inflammation, digestive issues, and even chronic diseases. 

A healthy gut with a diverse bacterial composition strengthens your immunity, absorbs nutrients, synthesizes required vitamins for a healthy body, and supports digestive and bowel health. 

6 Prevent Heart diseases 

The cardiac and hematologic systems are frequent targets of toxins. Persistent organic pollutants (POPs), Bisphenol A, phthalates, low weight, and polynuclear hydrocarbons are some identified toxins linked to the cause of cardiovascular diseases.

Exposure to these toxins inflames the body, rupturing the blood vessel lining and increasing plaque buildup. They interfere with the ability to regulate blood pressure and cholesterol levels, and both are important to heart health.

Many studies link air pollutants to increased risk of heart attack, stroke, and heart failure.

7 Prevent Liver Diseases



Prevent Thyroid Malfunction

Toxins have a detrimental effect on thyroid function. 

The thyroid controls the heart, muscle, digestive function, brain development, and bone maintenance.

It regulates the body’s metabolism and energy levels, and exposure to toxins can disrupt this balance.

Heavy metals and pesticides are some of the toxins that can impede the production of thyroid hormones, causing symptoms like fatigue, weight gain, and depression. 

PCBs and dioxins are other toxins that can disturb how the thyroid gland processes iodine, which is vital for thyroid hormone production. 

To limit the impact of toxins on thyroid function, avoiding exposure whenever possible and supporting the body’s natural detoxification processes through a healthy diet and lifestyle is crucial.

9 Prevent Arthritis Pain

Lead (Pb), cadmium (Cd), mercury (Hg), selenium (Se), manganese (Mn), and OA status from National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) 2011-2020 datasets show the connection to Arthritis pain. At the same time, Mn could be a protective factor against OA prevalence among the elderly population of the United States.

10 Children’s Health

Due to toxin exposure in newly born children, impaired organs may result in autism spectrum disorder. , Exposures to infants and young children can result in adverse neurobehavioral outcomes, triggering asthma and immune impairment. Exposure to chemicals that mimic reproductive hormones, especially in diet, might result in advanced puberty.

 11 Non-Toxic Environment Helps Quality Sleep Cycle 

Improved indoor and outdoor air quality refrains you from inhaling toxin-contaminated air. Breathing toxins for longer duration regularly cause sleep disorders. 

An example could be living near a burning pit where trash and waste burn.

12 Appropriately aged Skinprolonged or repetitive exposure to high levels of these pollutants may have profound adverse effects on the skin.

13 Oral Health A few of air pollution’s adverse effects on human dental health include Inflammation of the airway and resulting asthma—the erosion of tooth enamel, and a higher incidence of cavities and chips.
